I have a room with 3 entryways (so 4-way circuit) but I would like to have the three entry switches activate two separate switched lights ...at the same time...but also individually addressable at those two switches.
E.g. Like a hotel room that has an “all-on” at the door but then the bedside lights can be turned off and on individually at each side of the bed without going to the door.
So five switches...three at the entries...two at the beds. Entries control both bed lights in tandem...bed switches control them individually and independently.
New construction, source can be at any junction, plenty of space for adequately sized boxes.
I know this can be done, but cannot visualize how.
Edit: Yes, I’d like to be able to toggle the two bed switches on/off, independently, regardless of the state of the 3 wall switches.
Edit: the default state of the bed switches would be “neutral” I guess. Ideally the three wall switches would be able to turn them off and on together (as a single light) and then the local bed switches would be able to toggle them on/off separately.
Edit: Master (wall) controls would change state of bed lights no matter their state. Ideally, Master (wall) switches would control the state of both bed lights at the same time, while the bed switches would toggle only their light independently.
Scenario: -I walk into the room (dark) and flip the hallway wall switch=both BED lights turn on. -I walk through the room to the deck and flip the switch on that side=both BED lights turn off -I reenter the room from the deck, turning them both on again, cross to the bathroom wall switch turn them both off. -I reenter the room, flip the bathroom switch both BED lights turn on again.
=A standard four way circuit controlling two lights—
And then… -I get into bed, read a bit, and reach up to turn the bed light off via my switch at the bed…MY SIDE ONLY. My wife’s side stays on until her switch on her side is individually toggled off.
And then…I get out of bed (without changing the state of either of the bed switches), walk to any of the three wall switches and am able to turn both lights on/off together.
